Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross MP, Jamie Stone, has called on Conservative MPs in Scotland to "show Boris Johnson the door" following the Liberal Democrat victory in Tiverton and Honiton last night.

The Liberal Democrats secured the largest by-election win in British electoral history, overturning a majority of over 24,000 to take the Devon seat.

A swing to the Lib Dem just a small fraction of the size seen last night in Devon would see dozens of marginal seats held by the Conservative party lost at the next general election, the party says.

MP Jamie Stone said: "This historic victory in Devon should be a wake-up call for the Conservative MPs across Scotland who continue to prop up Boris Johnson.

"Just like in Tiverton and Honiton, people in the Highlands are fed up with a Prime Minister who is out of touch, breaks the law and lies about it.

"My party, the Scottish Liberal Democrats, are standing up for all those who have had enough being taken for granted by Boris Johnson and the Conservatives. We believe people deserve better.

"And as your local MP, I promise you this – I will not rest until people in the north of Scotland get the good deal that they deserve."
